KELLY OSBOURNE Lands Part In 'Live Freaky! Die Freaky!'

Kelly Osbourne is the latest cast addition to the forthcoming animated/puppetry film "Live Freaky! Die Freaky!", according to the film's official web site (www.livefreakydiefreaky.com). The Hellcat Pictures production was written and directed by independent filmmaker John Roecker and produced by RANCID/TRANSPLANTS guitarist/vocalist Tim Armstrong.

Described as "an epic motion picture of puppet proportions," the film is set in the year 3069, where the earth is barren thanks to war and ozone depletion. Survivors roaming the earth in search of food will be saved by the return of serial killer Charles Manson.

Armstrong narrates the film, according to Billboard.com, while his fellow RANCID members play various roles: guitarist/singer Lars Frederiksen plays Heave Parent, bassist Matt Freeman plays Heino, and drummer Brett Reed voices Cop #3. X's John Doe plays Hex, GREEN DAY singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong plays a cashier named Charlie, and VANDALS/A PERFECT CIRCLE drummer Josh Freese plays Prosecutor Bug. Osbourne, who plays Sharon, "will bring a new dimension to the part and only she could do it," according to a message posted on the film's official web site.

Others musicians in the cast are A PERFECT CIRCLE/ex-MARILYN MANSON bassist Jeordie White (a.k.a. Twiggy Ramirez), VANDALS singer/guitarist Warren Fitzgerald, A.F.I. singer Davey Havok, LUNACHICKS singer Theo Kogan, BLINK 182/BOX CAR RACER drummer Travis Barker, TIGER ARMY singer Nick 13, former WHITE ZOMBIE/current ROCK CITY MORGUE bassist Sean Yseult, and bassist Janis Tanaka (who has played with L7, PINK, and the MR. T EXPERIENCE). The film also features the voices of actors Ann Magnuson ("Friends & Lovers", "Wanda at Large") and Viggo Mortensen ("Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "28 Days").

The film will have a limited theatrical run in New York and Los Angeles in the fall, and will be officially released on DVD on February 15, 2004. The DVD will contain behind-the-scenes footage and will also come in a special package that will include the film's soundtrack.
